I’ve been having a hard time thinking of what to write for the blog. I keep thinking that I need to have topics that people will care about, but at the same time I wanted the blog to be personal, mostly about myself and my work. I’ll probably end up with a bit of both, but I figured for now I could pick the brains of anyone who happens to be reading this blog, and see if y’all can give me some fuel for future posts.
So the question is, what would you like to know about me? If I’m going to write about myself (which I suck at) here on the blog, I may as well write what the readers want to know. here are some things to get you started, but feel free to come up with anything you can think of. Even if it’s weird, possibly offensive or totally off the wall. Throw it at me. I’ll give some sort of response.
- What would you like to know about me personally? (Where I grew up, my childhood, hobbies, anything like that.)
- Would you be interested in knowing about my creative background, work habits, inspirations, etc.? What exactly would you like to know?
- What would you like to know some background on the books I’ve written?
- What would you like to know about the art I’ve done? (My inspiration, techniques, etc.?)
- What other things do you think I should talk about on the blog?
Post your questions and ideas in the comments. If I only have a short answer, I’ll just respond, if it’s something I can do a whole post on, I will. If there are enough questions, I might make a Q & A post.
Overall, I think I need to do what I intended to do when the blog was redesigned: ignore the fucking rules. Some people say personal blogs are great, some say you need to talk about what people want to read and make it nichy, never being personal. I really just want to write whatever and put it out there. I’d like people to get to know me and maybe make some virtual friendships through the blog. I think that would be cool. All the social networks seem to be going down the tubes, so a blog seems like a great place to talk and get to know people while letting them get to know me.
I hope that enough people read this to give me some good questions and suggestions. If not, well, the post will still be out there and people can respond to it at any time in the future. I still believe that if I can get my shit together and be consistent in some form this blog can really take off and be something awesome. I’m going to hold to that idea. I just need to find a direction and stick with it.
